Here at Think Fit. Be Fit. we are constantly on a quest to identify the best way to communicate effective exercise techniques and concepts.  Today, Nikki and Jennifer discuss 3 commonly used cues in exercise instruction that simply do not do your movement justice.

If you have ever found exercise instructions utterly confusing then tune in and start sharing because the cues that Jenn and Nikki cover in this episode are overused daily.  

Topics discussed:

  • An alternative to cueing that doesn’t make a lot of sense

  • How injuries are not likely to be associated with structural alignment

  • Pervasive fitness myths
  • Body resilience 
  • #freebritney and fitness purity culture 

Nikki is an experienced fitness professional.  “Workouts that don’t hurt” is one of the by-lines on her instagram bio @naablevy

 

She shares messy and intimate positions on recognized fitness myths and how the fitness industry can be dehumanizing and unfair to consumers.  

 

To me, she really sets the tone for change in the fitness industry.  We discuss one of the most important factors in the consumption of exercise and fitness- context matters. 

 

Nikki Naab-Levy is a strength coach and Pilates teacher with bachelor’s degrees in both Exercise Science and Journalism from Ohio University, and over a decade of experience helping people achieve strength and mobility with less pain.

Her work has been featured in SELF magazine, Women’s health, and Girls Gone Strong.
